I look after a 69 Mach 1. Here’s a review on it,
Something to remember is that even if it has been restored, it’s still 50 years old and it will break down more than a modern car so you need to be good with the spanners or have a tamed mechanic.
If that doesn’t bother you, I’d say go for it. A nice classic will turn heads. Here you see Ferrari’s and Lamborghinis every day and they barely get a second glance but when you roll by in an old mustang, everyone notices.
This particular one is for sale. If you’re interested send me a message and I’ll give you the details on it.
I would like to hear anyones feedback about owning a classic Mustang - so 66-69 era.
How is the maintenance and running costs? Reliability? Driving and ownership experience? e.g. can AC deal with Dubai heat.
Also - anyone who has done any customization work on theirs - i have seen some with bigger wheels on the rear than the front which look super cool. Also, if you have had the interior trim swapped out - what did you get done? Who done it? How much did it cost?
Thanks and look forward to hearing your experiences.
Blob? The sierra was a blob but the fox body is classic 80s boxy style. Look at the ferraris and Lamborghinis from then, even the jap stuff like Silvia's etc, all sharp angular lines. A perfectly natural evolution for the time period. When you look at the other Fords from that time, mk2 Fiesta, mk3 escort, mk5 cortina, it fits right in as a range topper. The fox body is the car the XR3 should have been. The Gartrac G3 was the only thing that came close.
